Indeed.  Let's make sure everyone in the pile-ups are calling on exactly the 
SAME FREQUENCY !!  That will undoubtedly help our rates, and the number that 
ultimately make it into the log.
 Packet was bad enough.  Your skimmer is a night-mare.

p.s.  I will be listening up 2 to 5 from 9Y4W in November.  Pete, please 
call me exactly on my frequency; that will help clear out the pile-up above.
